ANZ has developed a reputation for producing some of the world’s best; World of Warcraft esports teams, and the 2018 World of Warcraft Arena World Championship proves this is no exception.
This pedigree will be on show live from Sydney this weekend (22-23 September) as part of the World of Warcraft Arena World Championship Asia-Pacific Regional Finals.
In what will be one of the first Battle for Azeroth esports events; ANZ’s UnitasGG, Gronks, and Mad Dog will join three teams from Korea and two teams from Taiwan; in entering the arena but only one will emerge victorious, claiming their share of a $50,000 USD prize pool; and a coveted pathway to the Global Finals at BlizzCon.
It’s anyone’s game, with each ANZ team in contention to claim top spot:
- UnitasGG won the APAC finals in 2017, and were the first Australian team to represent the region; in Arena at BlizzCon.
- Gronks are in top position for the ANZ cups in 2018 and were one game short of advancing to BlizzCon; from the North America Regionals in 2016.
- Yoske, from team Mad Dog, has played on North American teams and is widely regarded as the player to watch in the event.
